bHive Villages launched in Bendigo as an online event, reflecting the times and conditions we are currently abiding by.
Click here to view a brief recording of the celebration. There was background noise and there was wind, but most of all there was great joy that the bHive Villages platform has been launched and is now available to residents in Greater Bendigo. Get ready for an epidemic of belonging!

Thankyou Time! In June 2019 bHive Cooperative Bendigo won the inaugural City of Greater Bendigo Great Ideas Innovation Grant, backed by Fosterville Gold Mine. That $60,000 prize enabled us to build Villages and launch it today! So a huge thankyou to the City of Greater Bendigo and Fosterville Gold Mine for having the courage to set up an innovation grant of that size and for awarding it to us! Today Villages goes live!
